You must have misunderstood Masa.

I already have the Tamiya Ride Height Guage/Droop guage. The problem I have is that I don't have any droop blocks (chassis stand offs). The Tamiya one requires it to only be 8mm high as that's how high the guage goes. Do you have any droop blocks that are 8mm tall to go with the ride height/droop guage from Tamiya, as pictured on the first page of this thread?

I have already bought the Tamiya ride height/droop guage from Champ. Is very nice to look at, but i'd like to use it properly too!
looks similar to the ones i got with yokomo sd kits years ago... you shouldn't need droop blocks. take wheels off place under chassis front and rear seperatly measure left right and adjust... thats how you measure downstop.

hope that makes sense?

Not sure I understand completely dynamite. I've only ever used droop blocks to work it out in the past, so it does seem to be quite different to the way you are suggesting.

Here, take a look at this link:

This is explains it better, I think. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Yes,

like the picture PD2 had posted exept your guage is "all in one". and you cant get any -negative downstop settings from it.

i'll take a picture of me using mine, if its still confusing... i use hudy blocks myself never really used the one that came in the kit...

Yeh, I've always done it like the way PD2 showed in that picture. I would be keen to see a photo of what you meant Dynamite. :-)

OK. So the blocks are not separated but part of the droop gauge measuring side too - almost like integrated. But then you say that you use Hudy blocks? Hhhhm? Yeah, we probably need to see some pics.

Glad the link helped a little. HA!

i use hudy blocks cause i got them in all-in-one setup station, and they are easier to use...

also, if i flip guage onto side it has ride height ability...

Ahh okay, I see. I presume shocks should be off and stabilizers disconnected though?
